    German, a little Russian, some Spanish, a touch of Italian. I'm only good at German, though.
     
  3. oh français québécois... it sounds kinda funny, especially if you're used to french french and belgian french.

    Luxembourgish,English, German & French and some random italian & spanish & flemish.
     
  4. It definitely does sound very funny! To some extent it can become really really hard to understand!

    I speak French (belgian) and could speak a bit of german if i got back into it... (used to live in Berlin years ago)

    Spent 6 weeks in Argentina last year and i was surprisingly ok with spanish although i never spoke it before!


    In the end the 2 languages i really speak are french and english though!

    Japanese, and enough to Korean to barely survive if I were stranded on the streets of Seoul.
     
  6. Funny, but to my ears European French sounds a but strange. But if you really want to hear some really funny French, listen to what the Cajuns speak down in Louisiana!
     
  7. does swearing like a sailor count?

    I understand enough Spanish to get the idea of something being said to me in simple situations.

    I speak enough Spanish to ask your name, order some food, order some beers, and ask where the bathroom is.

  11. French fluently, some basic Italian, basic Serbian, enough Swedish to get by, basic Japanese, basic Arabic, Portuguese (although I haven't used this in ages), Latin (yes, I can actually speak it like a modern language), ancient Greek (ditto previous comment about Latin), about 400 signs in BSL, 100 signs in ASL, some Spanish (picked up from a Spanish-speaking friend of mine) and some other phrases and words in about 10 other languages.

  18. I speak English with an accent similar to Midwestern US, appropriate for a professional broadcaster.

    Or I speak Swedish Chef: Eschverdy bass-a player hooorn!
     
  19. Hem. Interesting question. I speak English (Montreal dialect) and Québécois French.

    Except that at home we really speak Montreal's unofficial throat disease: Franglais.

    Native English speaker, four years of high school French under my belt, and living half an hour from Mexico, I've picked up some rudimentary Spanish.
